Available translation(s): FRE
Überm Staub und Lärm der Gassen,
Wind und Wolken zugesellt,
Fühl ich tröstend mich umfassen
Eine makellose Welt.

Seine Flügel senkt mein Sehnen,
Alle Wünsche gehn zur Ruh,
Und die Quelle meiner Tränen
Schließt sich sacht von selber zu.

Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Par-dessus la poussière et le bruit des rues
Vent et nuages se rejoignent,
Je me sens consolée par l'étreinte
D'un monde immaculé.

Son aile allège mon désir,
Tous mes souhaits s'endorment,
Et la source de mes larmes
Se tarit doucement d'elle même.
